Spicy Pickled Beans
These addictively crunchy sticks would make a mighty fine Bloody Mary garnish. Wide-mouth jars are your friend here. When placing beans into jars, try squeezing them into a tight bunch before pushing them down inside.
Spiced Pickled Beets
What a sweet addition to a summer veggie plate! Any kind of beets will work; we used golden ones for their lovely color. Although we love the softer flavor of white balsamic vinegar, you can also make this using 2 1/2 cups water mixed with 2 1/2 cups cider vinegar.
Dill Pickle Spears
Considering that the average supermarket dill pickle spears contain 313mg sodium each, these are downright saintly, with only 193mg in 4 spears.
Serve this crunchy-sweet-tangy relish on burgers or hot dogs, on a pile of black-eyed peas, in deviled eggs, or over steaks or grilled fish. If you don't have a colander large enough to hold the vegetables, drain them in a clean sink.
Refrigerator Pickled Blackberries
These glistening jewels would be incredible as a sauce for duck breast, as part of a cheese platter, spooned onto ricotta-topped crostini, draped over yogurt, or plopped into cocktails.
